My former employer and I ended our relationship on bad terms a while back and I recently got a letter claiming that I am infringing on trade secrets and intellectual property rights. Of course I did all the research I could to be sure I am not doing anything wrong, but I am an artist. Laws are not my forte. I was referred to Marcia by a relative who absolutely loves having her as a lawyer. I sent an email describing my situation and Marcia called me the next day. She listened to everything I had to say, looked at my documentation and advised me on what to do next. I appreciate her attention to detail and complete honesty. I definitely recommend her services and will continue to be a happy client.

I have a pressure washing business that I had set up as a sole proprietor ownership and after meeting Marcia at an event, I asked her to look at my options. She was very thorough in explaining alternatives available and the plus and minuses of each. We elected to go with an LLC and literally Marcia handled everything from the filings to the completed process. She also worked diligently on registering my trademark. After all was finalized, I was presented a binder that included the legal papers and notes to remind me of next steps. I was very impressed by her work ethics surrounding her fees and her availability . I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an attorney that is honest, upfront and looks at what good for the client.
